Much better than Asian Wisterias, is our own species from only a few isolated localities in eastern Oklahoma, as well as from states east of here. This hardy vine produces numerous chains of sweetly fragrant blue-purple blooms in spring. Superior to other species because it isn’t quite as rampant, is not prone to suckering and it rarely has its flowers frozen in spring as it blooms in early May. The plants we offer come from one of this species’ western most population and are vegetatively propagated so they will be quicker to bloom in your garden.
